if you had the chance to write a screenplay for Ellen, what kind of movie would you figure out to write?

Snow Crash? The writing is hilariously exaggerated and I think Ellen would make a badass Y.T.

Unfortunately I don't think the book would translate to the screen very well.
-"The things you do wrong, they haunt you." "Nah, I mean I'm already pregnant, so what other shenanigans could I get into?"
-"When is it acceptable to use our power and when do we cross that invisible line that turns us into tyrants over our fellow man?" "Silencio, old man!"

As a writer, I've given more than a little bit of thought to this subject. I've actually written about 20 pages of a script I'd love to see her star in, but I've kind of hit a dead end with it lately. I'm pleased with much of it, but it's a lot of random scenes that are out of sequence and I have yet to bring it all together. It's sort of a love story, I guess, heavily influenced by guys like Richard Linklater, Kevin Smith, and a little bit of Cameron Crowe (I'm a big fan of all those guys). I don't want to say too much about it, because it's not copy-written and I don't want my stuff ripped off from me (not that I don't trust you guys, but well, anyone in the world can read this board, so it's not so safe). I have no idea if anything will ever actually come of it anyway, but maybe someday you'll see it, and maybe Ellen will actually be a part of it. You never know.

I also thought about writing something with a part for her and Lauren Graham, because I'd really love to see those two work together, but I haven't had many specific ideas for it, at least none that didn't just sound like "Gilmore Girls" with Ellen as the daughter (not that that wouldn't be awesome, but I'd want to do something more original). So there's really nothing concrete there.

At any rate, I've really been meaning to get back into writing something soon, so stay tuned...

you know what? I got the feeling she didn't get offered many decent roles lately, that's why she slowed down her acting activity and has nothing scheduled in the near future besides Jane Eyre.

She would star in a movie I'd like to call Jane Rambo.

She would play the role of the most bad-ass woman in the history of movies.

yeah, she's played too many lovable characters. She needs to play someone you can just hate.

I would love to see her cast as a serial killer. Sounds weird, but something along the lines of Mr. Brooks...?
What if I wasn't Christian right now? That'd be awkward. ... Could you imagine if I was like, hm. I celebrate Ka-wanza.

It's so funny when people try to label me a cool, indie girl. No, I’m pretty sure I was in a movie called I Downloaded a Ghost.

It would be cool to see her as a Patrick Bates type character. But NOT like American Psycho 2 or anything.
Or a vampire. It's hard as HELL to make a good vampire movie but if they do something like Ann Rice it would be good. Idea! Jane Eyre meets Underworld? HA!
